2:02 am
looks like it could open down more than 1%. u.s. stocks saw their biggest loss since brexit on friday. this is concerned that global central banks are putting an end to monetary easing. we saw both stock and bond selloffs. manus: we did. this 30 day correlation between docs and treasury has turned negative. the view in the market is clear. they are readjusting their expectation level on what central banks will do. will the fed hike? will the ecb not consider any more qe? let's have a look at the risk radar. volatility is rising. at the end of last week, we asked what would cause it. vix ramped up, these stocks -- volatility is a rafting. msci all world equity down. on? will they say later there were warnings about overheating in the u.s. economy. msci world index down 3/10 of 1%. then you have 10 year government

2:04 am
oh! looks like we are still in positive territory. up seven basis points. if we look at spain, we are seeing those yields had higher, and portugal as well, the worst performing bond market this year. basically a selloff globally in bonds on friday, as we saw that correlation breakdown. it really was the longer data security leading losses. yes, 10 year yields on the treasury. we have that bond there again. a bit of repetition but it is important, rising to its highest since june. breaking news. manus: let's have a look. giving guidance for the year, full-year earnings per share to the marginally ahead of last year. ab foods is the owner of both the sugar business and the primark business. they say that grocery revenue is
2:05 am

2:06 am
speaking on the andrew marr show, she dismissed the idea that the foreign secretary boris an indication. >> i am fine with the cabinet working united. boris is not the driver. theresa may is. the rest of us are in the car. clear that we are all focused in the same direction, that we will deliver what she is after to do. shery: north korea has completed preparations for another nuclear test, conducting its third detonation for the year, according to south korean news, citing government officials in seoul. it comes after they carried out their fifth nuclear explosion on friday and claims they can now fit an atomic weapon on a rocket. the volkswagen cfo says that the company is still far from
2:07 am
overcoming the emissions crisis. it remains to be seen whether the 18 billion euros that the carmaker has earmarked will cover the cost the scandal. he spoke exclusively to caroline hyde. >> we are making progress. we are trying to provide solutions, technical solutions, to our customers, as a regulator. we have to regain the trust. we disappointed the customers. we need to work very hard, and we do work very hard. so, making progress, but we are far from fully overcome. it's a long way to go. shery: samsung shares have slumped again, seeing the biggest fall in years as u.s. regulators warned users to immediately turn off their cell phones and stop charging them. aviation authorities around the world have called on passengers to stop using the devices during flight.
2:08 am
e thousand phones released last week caused fires. global news, 24 hours a day, powered by over 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. you can find more stories on the bloomberg at top . i'm shery ahn; this is bloomberg. manus: thank you. breaking news coming through in the global gas business. x said theyra are set to terminate merger talks. putting them together would have created the single largest industrial gas company in the world, and that probably would have run into some considerable antitrust regulation, because it would have gone from four key players to two. that was the view from bloomberg intelligence. really, the whole concept of consolidation, that bites the dust. nejra: they had been exploring a
2:09 am
combination off and on for years, and it was supposed to be an all share combination, according to people familiar with the matter. but it seems they will terminate. let's check in on the markets in asia. david ingles is standing by. david: we have seen better starts to the week. in fact, it is quite bad. just a few things i want to point out about markets in asia. more than a handful of markets are shot, especially across southeast asia. if things don't improve, expect the markets to catch up tomorrow. back., volumes are the markets that are open are seeing significantly heavier volume compared to the 30 day average. we are talking about selling pressure there. the scale of the selloff we are seeing today is something we don't see regularly. we are talking 90% of stocks, roughly speaking, are on the way down. depending on which markets you look at -- hong kong, for example, or new zealand --
2:10 am
virtually every single stock of these benchmarks are on the way down. as you can see, the magnitude of the selloff -- it speaks volumes. when you are outperforming a market that's down 1.2%. if you look at the scores of some of these moves down, and i talked about this earlier, we are talking about standard deviations of at least three. statistically speaking, this is something you don't see very often. in new zealand, we have only seen the move down this much five times in the last seven years. as far as percentage, that's the biggest drop in over five years. very quickly, let me wrap things up with a look at the markets. fairly reflective of the risk aversion out there. you are seeing money flow into the dollar and the yen, which is gaining against the dollar, down about 1/5 of 1% on dollar-yen. yields are mostly on the way up, especially on the longer and of the curve. nejra: david ingles in hong
2:11 am
kong, thank you. federal reserve governor lael brainard will be the last of the central bank members to speak head of the traditional premeeting quiet period. some watchers think he may flip-flop, signaling that tightening is coming, while others see her urging patience. manus: meanwhile, the boston fed president has put bets on the interest rate hike. ys the u.s. economy should overheat if the policymakers wait too long to tighten. we have nick nelson, head of european equity strategy at ubs, with us. nick, here we go, the market is reappraising volatility. lael brainard will be the last to speak. the joke we haven't markets -- tony what you make of it. >> we have had a very comfortable over the summer, and post the u.k. vote to leave and some of the other risks we have had, with the italian referendum coming out in november, early december, the spanish elections
2:12 am
-- there are a few things in europe and the u.s. that have been in the background, and markets were incredibly calm. we have a view that the fed will be raising rates gradually, starting in december. we think at the end of the year you get a hike, maybe two next year. we think it's a very gradual path, that equities have got so used to the lack of volatility that they just needed a little bit of a kick to get them back into where we think the rate profile is. nejra: nick, we saw the vix volatility just up there. here's a chart showing the futures, betting on volatility in the next three months. they are trading at their highest level since 2013 vstoxx, to the thesv so they are expecting the call will not last. what do you think could drive more volatility? is it going to be the fed, elections in europe, the bank of england and the fallout of
2:13 am
brexit? >> i think it's a mix of those things. i think the fallout on the u.k. vote -- we saw obviously in july that pmi in the u.k. clashed at six or seven year lows. weak numbers from the housing market. quite a few of these bounceback in august. we are in this strange period in the u.k., because we haven't gotten negotiations started, we haven't triggered article 50. but i think we have got those dates about the italian referendum, which is clearly very important, and maybe toward the end of the year, spanish elections. as you say, the fed. i think you put all those together and they give us enough event risk to see a pickup from this very weirdly low period of volatility. look at some of this data. this is the dollar, the brexit spike, payrolls down.
2:14 am
the market is building a position in long dollar. some would say that you are wrong, that it goes lower on a hike. the market is beginning to adjust itself, isn't it? >> is an adjustment process. we would argue that by the end of the year it will probably be stronger than where it is now. we think that the growth premium in europe relative to the u.s. is narrowing. we had many years where europe was massively underperforming in terms of stock markets and earnings growth. ap --e think that cag europe is being pretty resilient. if you look at what was being thrown at the eurozone, it has hung in pretty well. the most recent pmi's and confluence indicators have been pretty robust. nejra: you have some interesting thoughts on em exposure for european stocks. of course, the stronger dollar tends to hurt emerging markets. is that how you see this feeding through and european equity is, or is it just concern, that we
2:15 am
see that hiking cycle? >> well, we think the dollar doesn't strengthen munch. if you go back to the trade weight back in november, that was quite a major peak. would argue that the dollar moved sideways or down. what you see also from emerging that they are weak.ibly currencies are down some 40% of the last five years relative to the dollar. this year, they are up slightly. if you are a european company weak. currencies are down some 40% of the last fiveand selling to asi what's coming back in rail and rubles, that was depressed. that is now bottoming out. we are also seeing pmi's as indicators showing relativel strength. we would argue a bit of em exposure, if it's the right price, is not a bad thing to have an european equities. manus: more or less the exception is 25 basis points. stay with us; we have more to
2:16 am
get through with nick nelson. far from perfect. that's how the vw cfo describe the position of the company, and that was before the omissions cheating scandal. nejra: in an exclusive interview, he told caroline hyde there were profitably issues and overinvestments. >> there is still some skepticism in delivering results. even without the crisis, volkswagen had a lot of success but we had profitability issues with the core passenger cars. and we are very honest about those shortcomings. we have probably been overspending and over investing compared to our peers. with a lot of room for improving, there is a lot of potential for free of the money to deal with the unfortunate payments as a result of the crisis, but in order to free up the funds.
2:17 am
manus: for more, we are joined by christoph rolled. he admitted to some shortcomings, talking about investing. this is a really strange time, and a strange message to send. how are they planning to get out of this crisis? two maink there are initiatives; one is a comprehensive reorganization of the company to remove decision-making bottlenecks in the volkswagen headquarters. they have already started to shift responsibility of from the headquarters to the individual brands. the other one is the point that we refer to as the issue of overspending, especially at the volkswagen brand. in research and development, they used to spend a lot of money on new machinery, new tools for each model. that's an area where they will need to improve. nejra: christoph, friday also
2:18 am
saw the first criminal charge from the u.s. investigation. the 18 billion euros in provisions -- is that going to be enough? what is the cfo have to say about that? >> yeah, the visibility there remains rather limited, and the proceedings have only just started to kick off in the u.s., with the first detailed information on who is responsible, how many departments and people have been involved. the legal investigation jobs day is still ongoing. the report we published in the second half of the year. and that will also determine the financial damage that will be done to the company. it's so far relatively difficult to estimate, and that is the point he also made in the while they dot the have a better handle on the total financial cost than they had a year ago when the scandal ted, there is still
2:19 am
some insecurity left over. manus: ok. chris, thank you very much. great interview by the team out there inted, there is still some insecurity left germany. autos reporter. up next? nejra: fourth is not the driver. the u.k. home secretary downplays talk of a split in the cabinet over brexit. we discussed the latest of elements. this is bloomberg. ♪
2:20 am
2:21 am
2:22 am
